BD Rating – Difficulty *** – Enjoyment *****
If we get a Micawber (or an Elgar or a Notabilis) on a Wednesday it seems to mean a puzzle with all the cleverness and wit of these setters but not quite as fiendish in terms of wordplay as we’ve come to expect of them on a Friday – that’s fine by me. I enjoyed it a great deal when I solved it and I enjoyed it all over again when I wrote the review; I hope you enjoyed it too – let us know in a comment.
